Canada 2018 Budget Funds $440 Million For Immigration

On February 27 Canada's federal government announced the 2018 budget, which earmarks over $440 million to support their goal to welcome 1,000,000 new immigrants from 2018 - 2020. Skilled, educated immigrants are critical to Canada's strategies to grow the economy and create new jobs.

The immigration budget will be primarily overseen by IRCC, and include:

  • $31.8 million for gender equality for immigrant women over the next 3 years.
  • $400 million to improve English and French language skills and help new immigrants integrate into Canadian society.
  • $4.6 million allocated for the renewal and funding of Canada's Start-Up Visa Program. Launched in 2013 by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), to link innovative immigrant entrepreneurs with Canadian experienced private sector organizations that have expertise in working with start-ups.

In addition, the budget allocates $173 million for asylum seekers to Canada.

I used Ackah Business Immigration Law to assist me during my application process for a work permit. Evelyn and her team provided great support whenever I needed it and made it possible for me to perform my one-year internship at McGill University. I had the feeling that they cared about by immigration to a high extent and without their help, I would not have been able to get my work permit.
